Steamboat Springs Bike Club - Men's Bib & Women's ShortsRide Workshop
Finally, a clean cycling kit that gives a nod to the cycling community and great riding in Steamboat Springs, Colorado! This kit is just for fun - No membership required, no sponsors, Made for locals and visitors alike, and it looks great at any speed. Wear it proudly on gravel, trail, or pavement around Colorado or anywhere in the world your bike takes you - just be ready for it to spark up conversation with others who want to share their Steamboat Springs stories.
Behind the design - Those who have ridden in Steamboat know it's cycling scene is as impressive as it's winter skiing fame. A small town filled with iconic rides, local characters, framebuilders, and riders of all types.
Local rider and graphic designer, Erin Horn, took inspiration from a 'Ski Club' jersey design dating to the 1930's. The original design resurfaced in a great picture of local legend, Bob Wither, at a 1984 vintage costume ski race (he took first place!). Now it lives on in our latest Ride Workshop cycling kit. *Photo courtesty of The Tread of Pioneers Museum.
And about that elevation calllout of 6732' on the rear pocket, it is measured at the old County courthouse downtown. It's likely one of the most common questions for anyone riding (and gasping for air) for the first time in Steamboat Springs.
Production - For this project we have partnered with Italian brand Alé Cycling using their 'Prime' cut of jersey and shorts - This comfortable and performing line is designed to suit every body shape. Innovative fabrics, light and breathable. The fit is ergonomic but not tight and favorite collection for every type of rider.
Please note Women's bottoms are standard shorts without bibs.
*Please note Alé garments run on the smaller side so if you are right on the border or between sizes, please order at least one size up.
**Size exchanges will not be possible as this is a limited small batch of jerseys, please contact us before placing your order if you are unsure of sizing.
